      SoundCloud is a platform for sharing weird and less weird Music, amateur and professional alike. Spotify is not. It has none whatsoever social features, and offers no upload features. Totally different target user range!

      tibbe On Spotify, artists must have a distributor to have music on the platform. On Soundcloud, anyone can upload music.

      Bandcamp vs SoundCloud opinions
      Almost everyone thinks Bandcamp is a great alternative to SoundCloud.
      Bandcamp is basically SoundCloud minus all the baggage. No complex "modern" interface, no ads yelling at you to give them money, just music. It is slightly more obscure, however.

      Deezer is a competitor to Spotify, not to SoundCloud (mainly because neither is community-based like SoundCloud is).
